Seen today on the scales in the ship’s fitness room:
Haha. To be sure, I have gained an awful lot over the last 10 days, in every sense – experiences, friends, insights, and pounds (to clarify – not pounds sterling, alas, but pounds lard.)
I’d like to say a huge thank you to all the naturalists, staff, captain and crew of the National Geographic Explorer, and to all my wonderful fellow guests for all the fascinating conversations we have enjoyed over the last ten days. It has been formative. Now I just need a good debrief with my journal to figure out what it is that this trip has formed.
Tomorrow I fly back to Australia to continue with presentations and preparations. Back to work!
